In my opinion it is tremendously appalling that angela bassett was not the first black woman to win the academy award for best actress. this performance was so far beyond words. angela bassett delivers in a way that serves as a hero to all aspiring african american actresses.triumphant!

A true story drama that I felt got a little too repetitive after awhile. The beginning is interesting but afterward it is basically beating after beating with greater resistance after each beating just. It just stayed this course through the whole thing and I just got bored by it in the ending. Yeah it was a bad cycle and the story should be shown as it was but it was just not dramatically compelling.

Bassett and Fishburne do an incredible job as Ike and Tina. The story itself is depressing. I love Tina and hate to see how horrible her life was with Ike. However, I've seen the movie several times and am pulled into the story every time. You can't help but love Tina.
